medieval univ. textbook for the study of theology which remained
in use to the 18th c. It was not only the basis of all later
theological science in its doctrine, it was the [crossed out] [illegible] [end crossed out] basis in
a much more literal sense, for the majority of the subsequent
Theological works were written in the form of
commentaries on the Sentences. The one & only Paris printed
ed. of the foremost of all Paris textbooks, does not appear until

-Book of Sentences - completed around 1150-52. 4 books - deal
respectively with God, Creation, Incarnation & Redemption &
finally, Sacraments & The Last Things.
-St. T. Aquinas in [insert] (1252-7) [end insert] 1254-6, commented on the Sentences, although the
importance of the commentaries as an endorsement of Peter Lombard
is somewhat eclipsed by the fact that Thomas later felt a
need to compose his Summa Theologies to introduce better order into
the treatment of theological topics.
-his earliest great work, in reality a series of public lectures.
